    Hey Khalil, we don't have a Slic3r profile for our MK3 as we primarily use CANVAS with our printer. Hopefully another user is able share their profile!

    Sadness. There are simpify3d and Cura profiles for mk3 maintained by Prusa staff on Prusa forums..... I think the idea was to provide the best experience for user even if they choose to use another slicer.

    People really hate how slow the canvas website is and they are seeking alternatives.

    "Hopefully another user is able share their profile!"

    ME - LOL

    For the most recent version of prusa Slic3r your directions are a good start but Chroma will still complain about2 things to user when they import gcode:

    1. hasn't set tool offsets to 0 (even with instructions above chroma still complained about offsets not being 0)

    2. if model is to big - Chroma will complain there is no room for purge block on build plate

     

    FIX issue 1.

    goto - 

    Printer Settings / Single extruder MM setup :

    Set "Extra loading distance: 0

    FIX issue 2.

    goto -

    Print Settings / Multiple Extruders / Wipe tower: uncheck (Chrome will make a wipe tower)

    @Johnny Yeu

    Does chroma process or ignor variables and conditionals that a slicer puts in start/end gcode?

    example

    {if layer_z < max_print_height}G1 Z{z_offset+min(layer_z+30, max_print_height)}{endif} ; Move print head up

    or 

    M221 S{if layer_height<0.075}100{else}95{endif}

    Hey Khalil, sorry for the delay! Chroma and CANVAS do nor process these conditionals in the start/end GCode. Thanks for sharing some information about the proper Slic3r settings as well.

    YAY

    got it working! it's almost there as I wish. One question though: What's the reason for the Print Setting/Skirt Loops(minimum)=0?

    I like this ring around the object because I get an extra round of 'balancing' and testing the extrusion and speed. Additionally it signs me clearly when the second layer starts. Would be great if it's 'allowed' for use with Palette too (actually i forgot and printed with the skirt - no problem).

    cheers!

    FYI: to see the "Retraction when tool is disabled" options in the newest version of Slic3r (1.42.0-beta1) you have to hit the "Single Extruder Multi Material" checkbox under "Capabilities" (Printer settings->General)

    Hi!
    Unfortunately this doesn't work for me.
    i wanted to improve my print Quality because Canvas isn't satisfying espacially the "gap fill".

     

    So i followed every Step of your guide for Croma with PrusaSlicer.

    I get a Error wich says: "Syntax error encountered" "Line 2079: Invalid percentage value 'undefined' supplied argument."

    What should i do?

     

    Prusa MK3S with Palette2S and CANVAS HubS

    Croma Version: 3.2.2

    PrusaSlicer Version: 2.1.0

    Windows 10

    Hello Sascha,
    The error u reference above, which software gave that error?

    This guide was written for an older version of prusaslicer.

    Iam talking about Croma Version 3.2.2

    after i Imprt a g.code file from Slicer to Crome, Croma says: "Syntax error encountered" "Line 2079: Invalid percentage value 'undefined' supplied argument."

    So, is there a guide for PrusaSlicer 2.1.0 ?

    Hey Sascha, would you mind sending us your GCode (jonny@mosaicmfg.com)? We'll take a look at the line where the error occurs and see what adjustments need to be made.

    Hello, I'm receiving my Palette 2S this week and I'm still slicing with PrusaSlicer 2.1.1 ... Can you provide me with the correct configuration in order to use Prusaslicer 2.1.1 for this Palette? The Slic3r version is an old version that has not been used for more than a year! Thank you for your reply.

    Hey there, the changes in settings above would be the same for PrusaSlicer 2.1.1. There's also a user-made plugin called P2PP (http://mm3d.co/p2pp) that allows you to use PrusaSlicer's features without the use of a post-processor like Chroma.

    Hello
    I can make an impression as you explained above. However, I can't load my file in chroma if the part has media.
    Chroma gives me the following error message:
    Line 154822: Invalid freedrate value '1.23578e+16' supplied as argument
    In my G-code this line is:
    G1 F1.23578e+016
    Can you help me?
